Ashes will be distributed for Ash Wednesday, Feb. 14th, at 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Please note the time change for the morning Mass.
Catholics worldwide will observe Ash Wednesday on Wed., Feb. 14th. This is a day of fast (less food for those who are between the ages of 14 and 59 years) and abstinence (no meat for adults). This begins the season of Lent, a time of penance when we make more time for prayer, works of piety and charity. Some examples include praying the Stations of the Cross, visiting the sick and elderly, praying the rosary, reading the bible and giving alms to those in need.
